The prototype galley on AIM Altitude’s stand at AIX 2018 focuses on innovative design that improves in-flight service delivery and enhances the aesthetic of this functional equipment.

A full centreline complex is on display to demonstrate forward- and aft-facing galleys with a central ceiling. The developments are based on the airlines’ desire to promote quality and brand among all elements of the cabin interior, whilst ensuring the galley is easily maintainable and meets weight requirements.

The branding and passenger experience elements that AIM Altitude has made possible on the prototype galley include animated lighting features, self-service ‘zones’, and various methods of disguising functional equipment, thereby making the galley product more aesthetically pleasing and cohesive within the overall cabin environment.
